"Guided Meditation – Settling the Body, Speech and Mind in their Natural States"

Meditation & Buddhism | Self Improvement | Personal Growth | Motivation

This is a 15-minute guided meditation in which we engage in the practice of settling body, speech and mind in their natural states. This practice is a wonderful preparation for any meaningful endeavour and can be used as a meditation in itself or as a preliminary practice to a longer meditation session. The purpose of the practice is to settle the body, speech & mind with the three qualities of relaxation, stillness & clarity. By practising in this way, our mind will settle, and it’s luminous, peaceful, blissful and nonconceptual nature will reveal itself.

This short session is an adaptation of the practice as taught by B. Alan Wallace, and has its roots in the great Indian Buddhist master Padmasambhava. It is found in the book ‘Natural Liberation’ by Gyatrul Rinpoche, translated by Alan Wallace, and Dassetu has received the oral transmission of this portion of the text.

David is an experienced contemplative and meditation guide who has studied the mind, meditation, and Buddhism for several years. He is the Co-Founder of Samadhi and a qualified Mindfulness teacher, Mental Health First Aider, and an active member of the Association for Spiritual Integrity. In his own practise and teachings, David focusses on the core themes of Early Buddhism and emphasises the practices of Shamatha (meditative quiescence), and its union with Vipassana on the Four Applications of Mindfulness and the Four Immeasurables – which presents a direct path leading to the realisation of our deepest nature and the potentials of consciousness, and closely follows how the Buddha himself attained enlightenment. He considers himself to be the fortunate student of many teachers, including his root lama, Lama Alan Wallace.
